Marinalife adds regional sales manager


Marinalife LLC added Sue Hicks as regional sales manager covering Florida and the Pacific Northwest.

Hicks joins Marinalife from The Duncan McIntosh Co. in Seattle, where she spent the last five years expanding the company’s advertising revenue base as its Pacific Northwest advertising manager for the consumer titles Sea Magazine and Boating World Magazine.

“Sue’s extensive experience in the marine industry will make her a huge asset to Marinalife,” company president and CEO Joy McPeters said in a statement. “We are thrilled to add Sue to our growing sales team.”

Hicks will contribute to Marinalife as the leading sales representative covering Florida and the Pacific Northwest. She is responsible for targeting marinas and marine-related companies to position their brand online and in print to qualified boating members and buyers, as well as ensuring consistent and profitable growth in sales revenue in her targeted regions.

“I’m excited for the increasing opportunities offered to Marinalife members and industry clients,” Hicks said in a statement. “Marinalife keeps boaters coming back for more interaction and adventures during their time on the water.”
